  2. The art has very little detail but sends a storng message about daily life at that time.

  7. The illustrated bears reminds me of the book "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" that I bought many years ago to read to my nieces and nephews. This was also a story I loved as a child. Have a wonderful weekend, John.

  9. How appropriate! I had a house-cleaning job on Friday. Plus my mom often likes to have our house cleaned on Friday for the weekend.
